THE BRONX - Three Bronx mothers have found community in tragedy after losing their young sons to gun violence.

Constance Malcolm, Jenaii van Doten and Shianne Norman can all be found sitting together for emotional support any time one of their children's accused killers has a court date.

Malcom's son Ramarley Graham was gunned down by a police officer in his own home following a chase that stemmed from a drug sting. Alphonza Bryant, van Doten's son, was killed by a bullet from a random act of gang violence.

Norman's son is the youngest of the three victims. At just 4 years old, Lloyd Morgan was killed by a bullet to the head.

All three cases are in early stages, but the mothers say they're committed to bringing justice to their sons, and being there for each other through the tough times.
